    Picasa versus Windows Photo Gallery



    Does anyone have any thoughts on using Picasa for managing and fixing their
    photos rather than Windows Photo Gallery. I have used Picasa for some time
    and found it fine for what I need. Now that I have WPG, I wonder whether I
    need both?

    Thanks,

    bj

    I like Picasa for its API, you can make things like this ONE

    RE: Picasa versus Windows Photo Gallery

    I too have been doing the same, and prefer to use photo Gallery over picassa,
    but picassa has a couple of important feature I needed, Rotate is one of
    them, I wish photo Gallery had the same, until then I must keep both, other
    wise I would use photo Gallery only.

    Windows Photo Gallery HAS rotate. It's on the bottom, just beside Delete,
    not in the Fix panel

    The newer Windows Live Photo Gallery has a few more features, and works
    faster, IMHO.

    So it's inadequate for most, but it's THERE
